Hi ! My name is Maria DeLos Angeles Cruz Oquendo born to Francisco Luis Cruz Santiago and (Maria) Dolores "Lolita" Oquendo Batista and I'm interested in finding more information concerning my mom's side of the family.
My mother was born to Demetrio Oquendo Montalvo and Alejandrina Batista Ortiz. They had eight children; Ismael, Ana Maria, Josefina, Dolores (my mom), Nerida, Candida, Giberto and Lydia. I know as a fact that my grandfather had other brothers and sisters, but I don't know all their names, I can only recall Galo (settled in Bayamon, PR) and Guillo (La Pica, Jayuya, PR), all born in Utuado, Puerto Rico. My mom's memory is not very good, so she cannot remember well, but tends to think her grandfather's name was Odocio Oquendo? Anyone have any clues as to how to go about getting more info on our family? Thanks!!! Regards, Mari
